Flashcards in Jehovah Deck (24):
Jehovah was passing before him and declaring: “Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and abundant in loyal love and truth
God is not a mere man who tells lies,
Nor a son of man who changes his mind.
When he says something, will he not do it?
When he speaks, will he not carry it out?
With someone loyal you act in loyalty; With the blameless, mighty man, you deal blamelessly
So listen to me, you men of understanding:
It is unthinkable for the true God to act wickedly,
For the Almighty to do wrong!
11 For he will reward a man according to what he does
And bring upon him the consequences of his ways.
12 For a certainty, God does not act wickedly;
The Almighty does not pervert justice
For Jehovah loves justice,
And he will not abandon his loyal ones.
They will always be guarded;
But the descendants of the wicked will be done away with.
May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah,
You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
For you, O Jehovah, are good and ready to forgive;
You abound in loyal love for all those who call on you.
6 Listen, O Jehovah, to my prayer;
And pay attention to my pleas for help.
7 I call on you in the day of my distress,
For you will answer me.
8 There is none like you among the gods, O Jehovah,
There are no works like yours.
And one called to the other:
“Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of armies.
The whole earth is filled with his glory.”
Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number; He calls them all by name. Because of his vast dynamic energy and his awe-inspiring power, Not one of them is missing
So my word that goes out of my mouth will be.
It will not return to me without results,
But it will certainly accomplish whatever is my delight,
And it will have sure success in what I send it to do.
For I am Jehovah; I do not change. And you are sons of Jacob; you have not yet come to your finish.
No man has seen God at any time; the only-begotten god who is at the Father’s side is the one who has explained Him.
God is a Spirit, and those worshipping him must worship with spirit and truth.”
so that they would seek God, if they might grope for him and really find him, although, in fact, he is not far off from each one of us.
For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable.
2Co 1:3, 4
Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,4who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God
When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone.
according to the glorious good news of the happy God, with which I was entrusted
Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you indecisive ones.
and is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago;
1 Peter 5:5-7
In the same way, you younger men, be in subjection to the older men.*+ But all of you clothe* yourselves with humility* toward one another, because God opposes the haughty ones, but he gives undeserved kindness to the humble ones.+
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time,+ 7 while you throw all your anxiety* on him,+ because he cares for you.+
2 Peter 3:9
Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance
1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love has not come to know God, because God is love.
